Focus Description:

Put your hand through a metal pipe 25 cm long. After that, push a lit candle into the same place perpendicular to the axis of this pipe (Fig. a). Move the candle "through the hand" and the hand will remain safe and sound.

Focus Candle passing through the hand

Focus secret:

Two holes are made on the surface of the pipe for the free passage of the candle. The holes are located somewhat unusually: they do not go out strictly along the inner diameter, but both are shifted to one side (Fig. b).

Focus Candle passing through the hand

This arrangement of holes allows you to push the candle next to the hand stuck through the pipe and do it in an absolutely safe way.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Magnetic Power Bank 5000mAh 14.06.2024

Huawei introduces a convenient and multifunctional charger to the market - Huawei SuperCharge All-in-One Magnetic Power Bank. This magnetic battery allows you to quickly and conveniently charge your Huawei phone anywhere, anytime.

The power bank is also compatible with Huawei phones that support wireless charging. ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Dolphin paradox resolved 16.10.2009

In 1936, English biologist John Gray calculated that a dolphin could not swim at 35 kilometers per hour because its muscle mass was insufficient to overcome water resistance at that speed. Since dolphins actually achieve even faster speeds, biologists have started talking about the "dolphin paradox".

Gray himself suggested that the matter was in the structural features of the dolphin skin, and since then the problem has been studied from this side. But recently, Professor Timothy Wei of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (USA) has shown that in fact the muscles of the dolphin are 10 times stronger than it was thought in Gray's time.
